Ecoli outbreak in UK may be linked to food item

Some 113 people have become ill with E. coli in the past fortnight and experts believe it could be linked to a nationally distributed food item.

The UK Health Security Agency says testing of samples suggests all of the cases since 25 May are “part of a single outbreak”.

Based on the wide geographic spread, it is likely a contaminated batch of product that people can buy around England.

In December, a person in Scotland died from E.coli linked to cheese.
